Well Jeff, I did climb with Tommy at Kanhyun-- both of us English speakers and all. . . and while I never met his folks, my brother interviewed him at his home (pre-Beth) for Climbing
-- a nice connection to have when he came to Korea (besides my being the best English speaker climbing in Korea back then!).
I went to the premier of Mortimer's last (2nd) movie, Front Range Freaks
, as my brother (Fred's) company was one of the flick's sponsors. Fred is in Pete's first flick, Scary Faces
. I know Timmy from Vic's (coffee shop near Ideal Market. . .) but no autographs please Jeff. . . (I will throw in a shameless plug for Fred's company Sharpend Publishing again!! He does distribute all Peter Mortimer films and his Indian Creek
Guide was a Banff Mountaineering Book finalist. . . and he offers a KOTR discount. . . ). . . thanks for the South Park
link. . . I'll be in town for Christmas. . . Fred's turning 40 . . . you should come. . . and you owe me coffee
Back to the thread. . . would be nice to get the fest but if not. . . maybe KOTR could pool videos and do a KOTR film night during the dark days of winter (near some ice climbing, preferably!!). . . ricardo may be able to get a projector going (or maybe shagymb, as his place is the only place in Korea where I've seen a projector working really well). . . I know jademonkey and b-team have some good climbing videos, ricardo has (the non-climbing but ultra-cool Micheal Franti vid) and I'd be happy to pick up Mortimer's latest over Christmas break!
